My parents got robbed last night
 
My parents got robbed last night at gun point while I was work, everything has been stolen

My entire DVD collection
My sealed Blu-Ray player
My sealed HD-DVD Player
My brand new 32 inch TV I just brought yesterday :(
My computer (I am at a friend's house now)

They also stole my Mom's jewerly, clothes, and possesions, same with my father too

At least my parents are okay but damn, it sucks :(

The TV and Blu-Ray player at Best Buy
The HD-Player on Amazon and the rest of the DVDs at Amazon

3 men robbed the entire place, it was ransacked everywhere

That sucks. Where do your parents live? In a high crime area?

They took clothes too?

Who held the gun when they carried out the TV?

Yeah, probably for their wives or something, I have no idea because my parents were in the sunroom at gun point while the other 2 was robbing everything so they don't know who carried out the TV

Do You live with your parents?

X 08-27-07 06:15 PM

So it was a crew of at least 3 people. That's a real home invasion. They're lucky they came out of it ok.

The Bus 08-27-07 06:16 PM

At least no one was hurt. :up:

Im sorry to hear that my mom got held up at gunpoint, just be glad that they are ok, you can replace the suff but not your parents

Yes I do, I was at work (I work the night shift) while it happened

jeffkjoe 08-27-07 06:21 PM

Well, it does suck.

But nothing beats your parents being okay.

jeffkjoe 08-27-07 06:23 PM

Let's talk about who these people were....

Were they white, black, hispanic?

Well, they were wearing ski masks and long sleeve clothes plus gloves so they couldn't even tell what color they are but my parents said that 2 have brown eyes while the other has blue eyes

Deftones 08-27-07 06:32 PM

Woah. That sucks. Glad your parents are OK. It's just stuff. Be glad they were hurt.

Be glad they were hurt? They aren't

DVDFreaker 08-27-07 06:34 PM

Now I am going to have to figure out how to get the X-Files original packaging again :(

benedict 08-27-07 06:44 PM

Obviously Deftones "were" was a typographical.

Does this suggest someone has been watching the place, or was it just the robbers' "good luck"?

I hope you or your parents were covered by insurance. If you have a list fo the DVDs mayeb it is worth contacting local stores just in case the gang are dumb enough to try to sell them nearby.

Someone I once worked with was robbed and a brand new tv was part of the haul. They also took the receipt and tried to take the set back to the shop and ask for a refund. The guy I worked with had told the shop (just in case) and, under pretext of checking something out back, the shopkeeper electronicaly locked the doors and called the police.

I don't know whether the whole gang was caught as a result but it was a good result because they had been breaking into the back of houses using a 4x4 vehicle to pull off the patio doors.

This youngish colleague was at the family home that weekend, his girlfriend may have been there too (I forget) but the parents were away. On waking and going down for breakfast they realised what had happened but had slept through the entire robbery!

If you have a Costco in the area check them out, they had the old packaging a couple of weeks ago.

Layziebones 08-27-07 06:47 PM

We should make a vendetta to find and kill them!!! Or at the very least, get his stuff back. I dont know how far 3 guys can get with stolen Blu-Ray, HDDVD, Hundreds of DVD's and a TV. Someone has to notice.
